To be woke is to be conscious and aware: spiritually, emotionally, and politically; individually as well as universally. Popularized by movements like Black Lives Matter, the term “woke” is now associated with black activism, but being woke is about inspiring awareness, education, and compassion--creating a better future for ourselves and our global communities.
Woke Folks Festival is that future – a universally inclusive space for people of all cultures and colors to be unapologetically themselves. We are woke folks because we are a collective of conscious co-creators, seeking unity by celebrating what makes us unique.
We believe that education, creation, and compassionate communication will light the way forward. Woke Folks Festival is a highlight reel of the art and information that bring humanity together in Chiang Mai. Love is the basis.
We are the change we have been waiting for.
